PURPLE BIRTHDAY WISHES


Paper Players, I wanna play with you! 

The Paper Players challenge for this week is a really fun one. It is a tic-tac-toe choice challenge. You pick the components you want to use in your project by choosing the across, down or diagonal combination of criteria you like. I chose the diagonal from the left going downwards: birthday, embossing, and purple.

Of course, I felt the Flower Patch bundle would be perfect to complete this challenge! OF COURSE!

And this is what I came up with:


When adding the "Birthday Wishes" sentiment, I placed it on a flat piece of white against the background embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder because I felt there was enough busy-ness within the flowers. So I certainly did not need more in the sentiment. 

The colors I chose were Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant. The contrasting centers and leaves were stamped in Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz. 

The only non-Stampin' Up! products I used in this card were the two nested buttons on the lower left flower. In digging through my button stash, I came across these cuties, which were PERFECT, and added their own dimension. I attached them to each other and onto the card with Glue Dots.


The following photo shows a bit more detail in the dimension of the piece.


This is the Paper Players challenge I used:


Thanks, Paper Players, for a great challenge!

  2. Wow! I love this card, Linda! I'm looking forward to playing with my Flower Patch bundle once it resurfaces... I'm still in the throes of unpacking, which goes slowly when working with a disability. It's all good, though... gives me time to think about what my future creations will be. I've had concerns that the framelits for the Flower Patch stamps didn't match perfectly because I've seen so many flowers cut off-center from the dies, but I see here that they do match up, and it's probably a matter of taking the time to line them up perfectly. As always, thanks for sharing your delightful work!

  13. Beautiful card. Thanks so much for sharing. Card making is something I really enjoy but it is on the back burner until my life slows down a bit. That said, I still love checking out all the card ideas online, especially from the Stamping' Up people. Well done.
